How can I get an 'n' with a tilde using my keyboard only?

I'd like to be able to type the 'ñ' (n with a tilde) character without using the mouse. How can I do this? Also, how can I create accented letters with the keyboard only?

If you are using Windows, you can change your keyboard layout to US International. Here is a description of changing the layout and how to create accent marks: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/306560

If you're on a PC, turn the number lock on your keypad at the right of your keyboard. Then hit the ALT key and while holding it down, type 164 on the keypad. You get

ñ

For others,

ALT 160 = á ALT 161 = í ALT 162 = ó ALT 163 = ú ALT 168 = ¿ ALT 130 = é ALT 129 = ü ALT 173 = ¡
